A researcher in our community is conducting interviews with elders in the trans community as part of a oral history project. There are oral histories of queer community members archived at the Manitoba Gay and Lesbian archives which have been hugely important in documenting the past and were a big part of the research done for Valerie Korenik’s 2018 book “Prairie Fairies: A History of Queer Communities and People in Western Canada, 1930-1985”. However, there are very few oral testimonies from transgender individuals and queer historical work in Winnipeg and the prairies has largely overlooked these histories.

Are you interested in participating? Do you know people who might want to be included? Please email jasefalk@mymts.net for more information.

More Theatre! Dragonfly

DRAGONFLY  by Lara Rae
March 14 – 24, 2019
Rachel Browne Theatre / 211 Bannatyne Ave.

Tickets: Students: $15/ Seniors: $22/ Adults: $27

This Original Workshop production is from Theatre Projects Manitoba in association with the Manitoba Association of Playwrights.

Tickets: TheatreProjectsManitoba.ca/shows/Dragon-fly  Or call 204-989-2400

In Dragonfly, running March 14-24 in Winnipeg, Lara Rae has written a play for anyone interested in gender identity, trans experience, theatre, poetry and storytelling.


Dragonfly tells the raw and heartfelt story of Lara Rae’s half century long (and counting) gender odyssey. In this original and poetic new work, Lara Rae tells the raw and heartfelt story of her half century long (and counting) gender odyssey. Two actors, one male, one female, illuminate the inner life of a trans woman from her Scottish childhood in the 1960’s to the present day.

Matching our inside to our outside is always hard. For trans people it’s often a matter of life and death. Stripping away the visual cues that both define and imprison transgender people, Dragonfly is a call to all of us to forge creativity from chaos.

A Note on Content: Dragonfly is an autobiographical, poetic journey that uses language, memory and storytelling as tools to explore the writer’s  life.  There are mature themes such as substance abuse, addiction, suicide and  sexual violence. The content can be strong and evocative.


A quick reminder if you’d like to go to dinner and theatre:
Sarasvàti Productions will again be producing and taking to the community our cabaret of monologues to celebrate International Women’s Week. This year’s theme is Here I Am, featuring an array of stories about embracing identity with pride and coming into one’s own.
